Excellent Jeff Daniels Movie, 15 September 2014
Author: Mark Maharaj

Maybe I am nuts here, maybe I expected very little, but this movie was better than expected.

It was better than good.

Dare I say almost great....yes it had some sub-par acting and the camera work was a little hazy during the fights but it was fun, fast paced, light drama, heavy action.

Maybe my score was due to my low expectations...but once you know what to expect, then when it surpasses those expectations, what more can be asked? Jeff Daniels did a GREAT performance, and Peter Weller can make any script decent. All in all at least try it and enjoy it for what it is; a solid action drama.

10 Stars from me....I am a fight movie fan and enjoyed the plot, nothing new but for a movie like this, it ain't a bad thing.
